Running low on propane? Weiders refills tanks from 5 lbs to 100 lbs, as well as tanks mounted in campers and RV’s!
Our experienced propane filling experts will inspect all propane tanks for condition and certification date. Unfortunately, if a propane tank is damaged, bent or has a missing collar or foot ring, has excessive rust, is not certified, or has been painted, it will not be refilled because these tanks violate national propane gas rules and policies. This helps keep you and our staff safe.
Needing a new propane tank? – We also sell brand new tanks and can fill them for you on site while you continue shopping. Make sure to get a spare tank for your grill or heater so you aren’t stranded when your current tank runs dry.

Filling a propane tank usually takes around 5-10 minutes and can be done while you shop!
Most propane tanks weigh around 18.5 pounds when they are empty. Place your tank on a household scale and subtract 18.5 from that number. From there, you can determine how much you have left. An average size (500 sq in) grill will use about 1.5 pounds of propane an hour cooking medium to high.
Propane tanks of 100 pounds capacity or less have an expiration date of 10 years from the date of manufacture. Once those 10 years are up, you can either dispose of the out of date tank and buy a new one, or have it inspected for recertification for an additional five years A propane tank’s date of manufacture or recertification date can be found stamped onto its collar. It will be in a month-year format — for instance, 06-17 for June 2017. Tanks that have been recertified will have an E on the end of the date.
